ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the visit of French Premier, Pierre Mend�s-France to the United States, which has been considered to be a major turning point in his official career. He refuses to accept slavishly American guidance or even ideas about politics in his own country or anywhere. The circumstances and the nature of the vote of confidence given to him a few days before his departure showed clearly that he is heading for a serious trouble and in order to weather safely the coming storm he will have to show that he brought something back and left little behind in Washington.
